I worked with Bobby at Hill Middle School for many years. I will never forget all the fun we had and all the kindness he gave to all of us there. If ever we had a problem, it seemed like he always had a way to help us work through it. He was one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever known and I'm so glad that I had the privilage of knowing him. Mary, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Mary Sharon and Sis:

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Bobby Jack was a very special person who I had the privilege to meet my senior in Denton. Being my first year to be there, he and you too Mary Sharon were very welcoming friends. He was taken from us way to early but good memories remain. When I drove north on 35, I always saw his red and white 56 Chevy sitting up by the house. It always brought a smile to my face.

Hope to see you at visitation as I have a MD appt. at 10:45 in the area.

Love to all.
